When did passengers first start traveling by airplane?
Early Air Travel Very early flights for passengers were usually for pleasure rather than travel. It was such a novelty! As far as I know, the first scheduled flights for the public began to operate in about 1912, but only over short distances. Anything much more than 30 miles or so was rare at that stage. Austria claims to have been the first country to have had regular scheduled long-distance air services. Apparently they started to operate early in 1918 on the route Vienna - Krakow (now in Poland) - Lviv (now in the Ukraine). In 1918 these places were all in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Unfortunately, I don't have the mileage, but the distances would have run to some hundreds of miles. NOTE. Please check this, as it seems very early for the kind of distances. In the early days, flights seldom operated every day of the week and air travel was very expensive. Some years years ago I saw a replay of a film made in 1938 (so on eve of WW2) by British Imperial Airways of a flight from London to Bombay (now Mumbai) and Delhi, both then in British India. From what I remember the journey took three days. The passengers spent each night on the ground at a hotel and all dressed up terribly elegantly for dinner. :)

From 28,000 to 33,000 feet.
Usually around 600 MPH
The first airplane was used for travel in the year 1921
The first president to fly in an airplane while in office was Calvin Coolidge in 1933. ? ?The first ex-president to fly in an airplane was Theodore Roosevelt, who flew as a pa…ssenger in a 4-minute flight in one of the early Wright biplanes on October 11, 1910, a year after he had left office. Theodore Roosevelt rode on a very short flight with the Wright brothers. The first sitting US president to fly in an air plane was Franklin Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt flew in a plane soon after he left office, so you can say he was the first ex-president who flew in an airplane. You can find reports that Calvin Coolidge took a plane ride while he was in office, but these reports can not be verified.
The first passenger plane was flown on Febrauary 8, 1919 from Paris to London. A person called Henry Farman was the pilot. The jouney took six hours. Fokker introduced commer…cial planes in the Netherlands in the early twenties. it is thus said that KLM ( established l9l9) is the oldes surviving airline , as opposed to lines that have gone out of business. One of the earliest commercial transports, of which a number survive in flying order!- is the Ford Tri-motor which was built in various forms between l926-35 or so.-and these were used much later. the Ford Tri-Motor was nicknamed the Tin Goose from the corrugated sheet metal body and wing construction- used also on French Mail trucks!
which first Indian lady travel by aeroplane
35 miles an hour
The way this is worded is tricky so I'm going to give you the answer to the question I think you meant to ask. The average speed of a large commercial jet airliner is ab…out 500 mph. A "passenger plane" can be anything from an ultralight on up. If you go from ultralights to jets and everything in between that has more than one seat, your average speed drops drastically.
Obviously every aircraft is different, it can vary from 1 in a small light aircraft, to 853 in the Airbus A 380. Most common passenger jets will carry around 160-200 .
The Airbus A380. . The world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, has completed its maiden flight. "The behaviour of the aircraft both before and after take-off… was completely normal," says Jacques Rosay, the Airbus chief test pilot who flew the aircraft. "After take-off we went up to 10,000 feet accompanied by the chaser aircraft. The aircraft has been fantastic." The plane, which has taken 10 years and $13 billion to develop, flew from its production site in Toulouse, France, with a crew of 6. It also carried 20 tonnes of test equipment to monitor the performance of the autopilot and other aircraft systems. Airbus intends to build four prototypes and to carry out 2200 hours of testing before the aircraft enters service in 2006. The A380 dwarfs the Boeing 747 jumbo, currently the world's largest passenger aircraft. It has a wingspan of 80 metres, more than twice the distance flown by the Wright brother's on their first powered flight. The A380 is capable of carrying up to 840 passengers on two decks and an air freighter version of the aircraft will carry a payload of 150 tonnes on three decks. .

They are called flight attendants. They serve the passengers with food, alcohol and other things. They help passengers escape in the time of disasters of accidents.
This is only a US and possibly other US areas, in Europe we use "persons" not souls. This is used when asking a pilot for details of the amount of people on board his/her ai…rcraft. SOB and POB (Souls on board) (People on board). This was derived from nautical terminology where they were slightly ambivalent to define who was actually alive.
Although the Wright brothers built the first motorized heavier-than-air machine in 1903 It was Sikorsky (of later helicopter fame) who in 1913 was the first to design and …build the first airplane specifically designed for passenger travel, the Ylia Muromets, also known as the Sikorsky S-22. It could take 16 passengers, had electric heating and an on-board toilet. The US came later: the first paying passenger is recorded to have flown in 1914. This was however not on a 'passenger plane' but on a two-seater Benoist XIV.
